  • Track has colorful night of dirt...

    Children learn their colors in pre-school, or simply by watching “Sesame Street.” They surely would have learned their colors Saturday night when the American Air Heating and Cooling All-Star Race rolled into the Lancaster Motor Speedway.

  • Sutton registers 40th victory in...

    “T” Sutton recently reached a youth golf milestone, posting his 40th win in three and half years of playing competitive junior golf.

  • Truesdale leads by example

    Lancaster High School head football coach Bennie McMurray said a host of adjectives aptly describe Bruins’ senior running back Zed Truesdale.

    One quality McMurray stresses is that Truesdale, a three-sport athlete, sets a good example.

    “We tell our players to lead by example,” McMurray said. “Zed is a senior leader and role model to our younger players. He works hard in the weight room and does all the little things you have to do.”

    Truesdale, a six-foot, 185-pounder, has even learned from himself.
